Return to Osho Menu

#1: Reincarnation. What reincarnates? Personality and individuality. Individuality has a self, a soul. Personality has an ego which is false. Past lives. What is freedom? On knowing, intellectual and existential. True knowing of one’s self is of silent communion with one’s inner being in silence. Knowing one’s self is not of the intellect. The intellect cannot know the being. The intellect is capable of knowing everything on the outside but the intellect cannot go behind itself.


#3: Birth trauma and fear of the unknown. Unconscious and superconscious. Silence and madness. Latihan meditation. Trust in existence.


#5: What is the essence of Zen? Zen is pure freedom from all organised religions, political ideologies and philosophies. Zen is pure meditation. Zen is the opposite of prayer. People pray out of fear or greed. Zen originates from the root Dhyan in India. In India it was called Zan, in China it was pronounced Chan and in Japan Zen. Zen has no beliefs. Meditation takes you inwards to the centre of your being, prayer takes you outwards away from your being. Religion is about coming to your own centre. When Buddhism arrived in China it merged with Taoism and became Chan. Tao is about let go. When Chan arrived in Japan it became free from Buddhism and Taoism and it became Zen. Zen requires no philosophical support. Zen just uses witnessing to develop awareness. Osho teaches Zen without using the word Zen and its connotations. Zen is about entering into pure consciousness.


#5: Talks on group consciousness and collective consciousness. Can drop into the unconscious mind or rise into the superconscious. The 100th monkey effect. Riots, crusades and witch burning.


# 7: Tibetan Bardo. Instructions for meditators at the moment of death. Excellent section on witnessing.


#8: Distinction between brain and mind. Tabula rasa and past life memory. Mind is like a layer of conditioning around the consciousness. There are thousands of layers to the mind, one for each life, mind is as ancient as existence. Mind does not die with the body, it remains with the consciousness.
Each life we get a new brain. Past lives are archived in the ‘basement’ of the brain. Memories from this life are stored in the brain and when we die they are archived with the other memories. Brain is like a bio computer that stores information. At school we memorise information. We can sort that information as we do searching the internet. Intelligence is the ability to understand and use the information retrieved. Intelligence is not about memory. A research study demonstrated that people with excellent memories often lack intelligence whereas people with poor memories often have higher intelligence.
Memories are like information stored on a computer. Sub personalities are like computer programs. Sub personalities cannot be aware of each other. The consciousness has to be ‘in’ the sub personality for it to be active.
You have to pass through each layer of past lives consciously to enter the consciousness. Emptiness/nothingness = consciousness. Mind is as eternal as life until you become enlightened at which time the mind dies and enlightenment begins. Enlightenment continues for eternity. Meditation is a way to penetrate the mind towards the consciousness.


# 8: Osho was born on the verge of enlightenment. On trust and gratitude. Osho’s first day at high school and his conflict with the head master.


# 9: Trust. Osho at high school. On acceptance of yourself and being yourself. Others define who we are. The politicians mind. Conscious mind, superconscious, cosmic superconscious, unconscious, collective unconscious and cosmic unconscious mind. Repression and expression. Witnessing (conscious awareness) develops the superconscious and allows light to enter into the unconscious minds. As you develop the superconscious the unconscious minds lose their power. Past life memories stored in the cosmic unconscious.


# 10: Conscious mind and sub conscious mind. Ordinary memories are stored out of conscious awareness in the subconscious. For something to be repressed into the unconscious the conscious mind must feel that there is something wrong with something natural. E.g. that sex is bad. The use of the term ‘unconscious mind’ by NLP and hypnotists is quite broad and probably refers as much to the subconscious as to the unconscious.
The gaps that you get in meditation where it feels afterwards like you must have gone to sleep are possibly where you have slipped from the conscious mind into the unconscious but with a loss of conscious awareness. With increased alertness one can remain conscious during those occurrences.
When you get a lot of imagery just let it slip by and remind yourself to go deeper. Use NLP timeline techniques to release stuff stored in the unconscious.


# 11:
With each life is there a spiritual advancement on the previous one? What are you consciously aware of? Some people are only conscious of anxiety, worry and anguish. To be more conscious may mean to be conscious of more pain. Many people try to be less conscious. Some use alcohol and drugs to be less conscious. The lust for power, money and prestige also acts as a drug. But there is an inherent longing to be totally conscious.
Buddhism and Jainism have studied past lives for thousands of years.
After enlightenment there is no duality of the subtle bodies and there is no duality of emotions.
